Working from Home with Remote Solutions and Collaboration Tools

A survey from Service Now reveals that employees have settled into working from home during COVID-19 although almost 40% of remote workers claim that technology is a barrier to productivity.  Improved technology would increase productivity for more than one quarter of office workers with increased access to collaborative tools, communication, workflow management and remote training.

Embracing technology is essential for remote workers to be productive.  Remote workers need a laptop, a dedicated workspace, a cell phone and a good connection with home internet speed at or above 25 Mbps to allow you to upload and download files, browse the internet and have Teams meetings.  To check out your internet speeds, search online for “internet speed tests”.
